    BBC uses our license fee to put Fatima Salaria in charge of religious television.

    This is the woman who gave a platform to Abdul Haqq (follower of Anjem Choudary) on Muslims like Us to promote Islamic State. Is the BBC wrong?

    That's nice of them! Happy Saturday everyone

    The BBC should just stick to broadcasting substantiated facts in an impartial way......end of.

    The BBC is so leftie loving libtard it can't help WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    brilliant. a level headed person who will look at all religions equally. oO

    Never heard of them but their voices should be dubbed like Gerry Adams was but with a comedy accent

    Was she given a fat salary?

    I take it OP didn't see the programme they are objecting to. It wasn't a promotion for IS and anyone who thinks so is an idiot (or just reads Daily Mail headlines which is much the same thing)

    The BBC continues to sicken.

    En-masse non payment of licence fee would show them!

    Oh Alan, she gave him a platform to spout his sympathy for the political grievances of the terrorist organisation Islamic State, he also said the murders of hostages who were beheaded were not unprovoked.

    So by paying the tv license you're indirectly supporting terrorism?.

    It's more harmful to watch the BBC than pirating videos?.

    programming to concentrate on one religion, her religion...not Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism et al

    They waste money on crappy tennis every year too.

    First of all, what religious television?, Secondly shouldn't the head of it be neutral, not of any religion but someone who is not a rabid atheist, such as someone from a arts, architecture or literary background who would have studied religious arts and culture etc as part of that wider field so they are knowledgeable and open minded

    She has been given th execuitve job in charge of religious television programming

    Its ridiculous that in the 21st century, our state broadcaster even has a religious department, if religious people want to carry on with their daft beliefs let them do it in the privacy of their own homes, why should the rest of us have to fork out through the license fee, funds used to justify their idiotic ideas.

    So you want our "state broadcaster" to deliberately snub a large percentage of the population to pander to you, how is that serving the people who pay for it?.

    I'd like to see all sport, soaps, costume dramas, detective shows and fly on the wall\reality TV shows axed.

    BBC is banned by trump.

    Just because a percentage, i would argue that its not a large percentage but a small one, of the population, have a strange belief in something should not justify a BBC dept dedicated to it, there are a percentage of the population that believe in the Loch Ness monster, should that have its own dept?, how about the Yeti or fairies, should we have a head of broadcasting for the belief in aliens?, i would argue that there are more people in this country that believe in life elsewhere in the universe than any of the gods you can conjure up, should we have a Head of E.T diversity at the Beeb?

    ​if I wanted to watch women in skimpy clothes grunting or men rolling balls in their hands I'm sure I could find a subscription channel.

    I don't watch any BBC broadcast / programmes. I don't pay the licence fee. I am free from the Biased Broadcasting Company.

    Why does the BBC hate traditional English values so much?

    Can we look forward in the near future to a Christian being appointed as head of religious broadcasting in a Muslim country?

    ​to be honest, I most probably ticked Christian in the census, I think if you were brought up christian you just tick the box automatically whether you believe or not. I really think that the 2011 census is not a great guide.
